    Pros

    Achievers is a great place to work for a young person. Here are some listed pros:
    - Most people are very nice, positive and inclusive
    - Company CULTure is fantastic; there is always something to get involved in whether it be community service opportunities, yoga, or drinks to celebrate a teammate's birthday
    - Fully stocked bar
    - Free lunch every day ordered via Seamless
    - The work itself is fun and positive because the company sells a great product
    - Leaders are approachable and kind

    Cons

    While Achievers is a lot of fun, it's a lot of work too...
    - Work tends to pile up - it ain't a walk in the park to work here.
    - Not enough people for number of tasks and amount of work
    - Because things are constantly changing, much of the work is last-minute tasks with close deadlines
    - Pay isn't great
    - Work can be disorganized at times

    The biggest point here is, like previous comments mentioned, Achievers has a start-up culture... for better or for worse. It's a lot of fun, but you can't have too much fun because at the end of the day, you've got deadlines.

    Pros

    Fast paced workplace, that is leading the space for employee engagement. Achievers is full of smart people who are willing to do what needs to be done to make an impact.

    Cons

    New executive team seems disconnected to the vision of the company. A lot time is spent talking in circles instead of using existing employees as a knowledge center.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose touch with where the company was going before you got here, empower us don't micro manage us.

    Pros

    Great people. Super helpful environment. The product and senior leadership are both solid.

    Cons

    No set career path, or it is always in flux. They are a growing company and a startup, so things will continue to be rapidly changing. The pay is near the top of the range for my position, but it isn't the very best.

    Pros

    People are nice. The culture is great although it might turn some people off. There seems to be a lot of transparency.

    The company is at the phase where it is growing and thus is having trouble holding onto its start-up culture.

    Pros

    Management is amazing–they really work hard to keep employees happy. Training includes two full days of lectures alongside job shadowing, which can get quite boring since content is repeated. Nonetheless, you'll know the company inside out afterwards.

    Cons

    The company is great in terms of benefits. You're given four vacation weeks, but one of those weeks consists of mandatory half days.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, Achievers is a great company. They really work hard to hire people that fit the culture. Also, the company is so large at this point, in terms of developers, that I feel like there isn't much room for personal growth.
